"San Diego's Hardest Trail Race*"

Welcome to San Diego's only trail race through beautiful Gonzales Canyon Open Space.


Due to construction at the race's original location, the event has been moved to the beautiful Solana Ranch Park, which sits at the opposite end of Gonzales Canyon, and features a less hilly course than usual. 

Although not as much elevation and hills for the 10K and 5K, the 15K runners will still see the locally famous "Puke Hill" and "Roller Coaster" as part of their course... that's right we couldn't let that happen. Someone needs to race up the damn thing!

Don't let the coastal backdrop fool you... the trails on this course can feel like a mountain race so train like it is.

This is event is limited to 350 runners and will sell out!

(*due to the relocation of the event in 2022, the dfficulty of the event has changed, making the 5K event great for all running levels.)
